ACAS, aiming to encourage Filipino scholars and practitioners to do research about other Asian countries will hold a conference in August 2005. The theme is NATIONALISM AND GLOBALIZATION in the ASIAN CONTEXT. Interested scholars, researchers and practitioners are asked to submit the title and abstract of their paper proposals on or before 17 September 2004 because we in the ACAS Executive Board will draw up the conceptual framework from the papers submitted. In this way, prospective participants will have more freedom to decide on the topic of their papers and will have significant inputs in the drawing up of the conceptual framework.

Papers should be about Asian countries other than the Philippines, or the Philippines in comparison with other Asian countries. Or, they may be about the Asian region or its sub-regions.

There is no funding for research, but there will be honoraria for paper presentors and a chance to publish.

For inquiries please e-mail or call Dr. Lydia Yu Jose at 426-6001 (local 5248).
